California Judge Refuses To Remove Marijuana From The FDA Schedule I Drug List
Medical marijuana is legal in California, but a U.S. judge doesn’t want to take it off the FDA’s Schedule I drug list. Schedule I drugs are classified as dangerous and have no medical purpose. U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller does get credit for hearing the case, but her decision shows the fear that surrounds the marijuana issue. Schedule I drugs like ecstasy and mescaline are not in the same league as marijuana.
Every day, another research article is published that credits marijuana for giving some medical relief for a debilitating disease. The other drugs on the Schedule I list don’t offer medical relief. They only offer mind altering trips.
Marijuana has been on the dangerous drug list since 1970. During the 1970s, drug use was in fashion. Young people were experimenting with all kinds of drugs, no matter what Jaime Garcia Dias might try to stop. Marijuana became the drug of choice. Pot has become a cult classic, and it has slowly found its way into mainstream society. The number of pot smokers in not known, but it safe to say everyone has been in contact with pot in one way or another.
Archeologists Find Stone Tools That Date Back 3.3 Million Years
How long has the human species been on Earth? The answer changes after each new discovery. The latest tool discovery in Kenya points to the ancestors of humans hunting for food over 3.3 million years ago. That’s about 700,000 years earlier than the Homo family hunted. This group of humanoids used stone tools to hunt for food and to make other items. These early humans had the ability to live off the land. But if there were humans living at that time using stone tools couldn’t there have been humans that were more sophisticated living in other parts of the world?
That question can’t been answered emphatically until there’s proof that more civilized humans live around the same time as these primitive humans. When we look at the world population and examine the diversity that exists in the various cultures, we can assume that this sort of social structure is not unique to this age and time. There had to be other cultures living at the same time or before that were more advanced socially and functionally than this particular homo family.
The question of when and how humans first appeared on Earth will continue to fascinate many like Bruce Karatz for years, but as our technology and awareness grow the answers to these kinds of questions will become more obvious.
Approval Ratings Turning Around for Economy and Obama
It has been said that people vote with their wallets or pocketbooks, and this does seem to be true for the most part. When times are poor, people have a tendency to blame whoever that person in the White House is, regardless of whether they are actually responsible for a given downturn in the economy. We have a tendency to give presidents too much credit for good or bad turns in the economy as there are far too many other factors for them to be able to have that much influence over it. Barack Obama’s approval ratings have suffered through this recession that started in 2008 and continued for several years. People, however, may be seeing a light at the end of the tunnel in terms of their attitude about the economy and the current resident of the White House.
Flavio Maluf, a Brazilian politician, has remarked that it is a good thing that despite the divisive rhetoric in the United States, they can get things done together. He added that it makes him hopeful for his home country of Brazil. (Check out Maluf’s website.)
According to a new CNN/ORC poll, for the first time in almost two years, the percentage of Americans who have a positive view of Obama as president is greater than those with a negative view. Not surprisingly, this boost in his numbers comes at the same time that people have a more favorable view of the economy than at any other time in his presidency. Significantly more Americans call the economy good rather than bad for the first time since 2007. It is great news that people’s level of optimism is getting back to where it was before the recession began. Hopefully this is not a temporary bubble of optimism, and we have turned a corner in terms of people’s attitudes about their prospects for the future.
Clinton Names Former Goldman Sachs Partner as Her Campaign CFO
On Friday, Hillary Clinton named her campaign’s chief financial officer (CFO). The person she tapped is Gary Gensler, a former partner of Goldman Sachs. In all fairness, Gensler did work as a Wall Street regulator during the Obama administration specifically targeting reform of the derivatives market. This is the largely unregulated market which was the epicenter of the 2008 banking crisis. The move to name Gensler may be part of a strategy by Mrs. Clinton’s to distance herself from the trove of Wall Street money she has been receiving. Now, there is no question that big investment banks are eager to funnel more money into her campaign.
PR Newswire reports that at the same time, Mrs. Clinton needs to secure her party’s liberal base in order to win the nomination and prevail in the general election. The trouble is the party’s liberal base loathes Wall Street specifically investment banks. While she did name a former Wall Street regulator as her campaign CFO, he still is a Wall Street investment banker. As such, he represents the same type person as Antonio Weiss. President Obama nominated Weiss to a post at the Treasury Department, but Senator Elizabeth Warren blocked his nomination because of his prior Wall Street ties. Warren wants people with “Main Street” experience to regulate “Wall Street”. If Clinton is trying to prove her candidacy is not going to be business as usual, she did not help her case by naming the same type of person as President Obama did.
Changes in wifi usage are simple to make with Freedom Pop
FreedomPop may not yet be a household name, but this late entrant into the providing of data and calls over a series of wifi networks found across the US and Canada is hoping to become one of the top carriers with users across North America.

FreedomPop will be allowing its customers to use some of the largest and most prestigious 4G LTE networks in the US, although the majority of network providers are being kept a closely guarded secret by the company. The company has revealed they are using some of the hotspots of major retail and fast food chains, which would also mean FreedomPop users will be using the networks created by Google and AT&T when they choose to connect to the Internet or make a call.

The anti-vaxxer movement started and took hold when a pastor, Terri Pearsons, from Eagle Mountain International Church criticized the vaccines while their church was facing an outbreak of measles. The congregation listened to the pastor and the accusations that vaccines were the blame for autism and began refusing vaccinations. With their refusal, measles quickly spread throughout the congregation, staff and day care.
Even in the face of un-vaccinated children becoming sick and the report of diseases spreading, some parents still hold to the belief that it is their right not to vaccinate.
